The 2020 Grammy Nominations Are Here



If your jaw didn’t drop to the floor, did we see the same Grammy Nominations?

The Recording Academy revealed its massive list of nominees for the 62nd Grammy Awards. This year, it looks like Lizzo and Billie Eilish are in high demand, with six and five nominations respectively. It makes sense though since both singers have been absolutely everywhere this year. If you hear the term “DNA Test” there’s a huge chance that, if you’re not in a scientific field, that it’s in reference to her now Grammy-nominated breakout single “Truth Hurts.” And Eilish’s “Bad Guy”  – which is nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year – is equally as huge and addictive.

After a whirlwind year of massive success, Lil Nas X securing a nomination for Best New Artist feels like the perfect storybook climax. It would be even bigger if he wins the award, of course. Going from “Old Town Road” being kicked off of country charts to being remixed with Billy Ray Cyrus (now nominated for Record Of The Year) and now the rapper becoming a Best New Artist nominee, it’s clear that Lil Nas X is the force to be reckoned with that so many have now realized.

This extremely wide-open field of nominees makes for such an interesting period of speculation as we await the actual show. Will Beyonce’s “Spirit” from The Lion King overcome Ariana Grande‘s “Seven Rings” or Taylor Swift‘s “You Need To Calm Down” Can 21 Savage‘s I Am > I Was snatch victory from rising rapper YBN Cordae who’s secured a Grammy nomination for his debut album?

We’re almost dizzy with anticipation! Check out the full list of released nominees below and make sure to tune in to the show on January 26.
